Description


Walking Through Fire is the story of Nawal El Saadawi, the first Arab woman to write about sex and its relation to economics and politics. It explores her extraordinary life spent in resistance, and shows the passion for justice that has shaped her life and writings. A sequel to her first autobiography, A Daughter of Isis, this book chronicles her time spent as a rural doctor, her attempts to set up women’s organizations and publish magazines later banned by authorities or endangered by fundamentalist threats, her time in exile after her name was published on a death list, and her marriages and ensuing struggles against her "false self”.
